. if rupert murdoch thought shutting down the news of the world was going to end his problems that's clearly not the case. this scandal is spiraling it seems out of control and it has begun to affect his business operation. what you're seeing here today is a move by the government nick clay the deputy prime minister to get murdoch to pull out of this $14 billion deal for the british satellite network bskyb. this is a hugely important deal for him. there is such public pressure and disgust that it's time for him to react to it and pull out. murdoch has flown here to show his support for rebecca brook who was editor of the news of the world as well as support for his son. >> are we talking about billions of dollars here? what size of deal is at risk here for rupert murdoch and his empire? >> it's a $14 billion deal in. the scope of murdoch's business this is not so big that it's going to be detrimental. for his image there's a problem. there's talk of new investigations of news corp. holding that includes holdsings in the u.s. as well. nothing has been announced so far. but it certainly does t

conference any minute now. >> so this arrest hits closest to rupert murdoch, especially since she is like a daughter to him. and his son james is still scheduled to face parliament this week. >> all three of them are still scheduled to face parliament but there's a question as to whether rebekah brooks will brooks will be able to. we don't know the conditions of her release is and she's very closely linked to this investigation. lawmakers will be restricted in what they can ask her because they can't prejudice the ongoing police investigation. so it could really constrain that hearing at parliament. of course, james murdoch and rupert murdoch will also be there and they may be constrained by what they can say because of the ongoing investigation. >> and it seems like this would present other problems because scotland yard questioning her, arresting rebekah brooks and yet scotland yards is being investigated because of their inappropriate relations with this media empire. >> well, that's just it. a lot of people are asking just how close were reporters at "news of the world" with police be

with the resignation of a key executive in the rupert murdoch media empire. rebekah brooks is out. many people were outraged when brooks kept her job after the newspaper was shut down for scandalous reporting tactics. and as brooks steps down, the investigations ramp up. the fbi now investigating the murdoch empire right here in the united states. lawmakers demanding the probe amid reports that murdoch's journalists hacked the cell phones of 9/11 victims and their families. susan candiotti in new york with the details now. susan? >> reporter: hi, kyra. good morning to you. yes, this investigation is now 24 hours old. as fbi tries to figure out how they are going to approach this. all of it started, kyra, with a report in a british tabloid that a private investigator here in new york, that there was an attempt to hire him to hack into phone records of 9/11 victims and families, as well as reach out into the voice mails of 9/11 victims and families. the fbi, that appears to be the starting point and see if there is any truth in that. people on thrill and 9/11 families have been pushing for this. the
scandal in britain. rupert murdoch is being pressured to appear before lawmakers in london and washington. dana lewis is in london good morning. >> reporter: good morning, we're hearing a ninth person has been arrested in the phone hacking scandal, the former executive editor of the "news of the world," but the late breaking news here this morning is the british government committee has just issued a summons for rupert and james murdoch to appear before them to answer questions about what they knew in the phone hacking scandal but legally there is a serious question over whether they can be compelled to appear. damage control in high gear rupert murdoch and son james in london trying to find a way to put out the fire. news corp shut out "nut of the world" withdrawn the bid for bskyb television but the scandal won't go away. politicians aimed to get murdoch and rebekah brooks to appear before parliamentary committee which recently grilled senior police officials over the "news of the world" phone hacking controversy. david cameron told parliament "if

at the center of it all, rupert murdoch. nbc's martin fletcher is in london. martin, what's the latest on all this? i understand rupert's coming here. >> he's already there, chuck. he arrived yesterday and it was quite a welcome, by the way. his new york apartment, the paparazzi welcomed him as he got out of his black vehicle with his wife, called out "nice lift, wendy." "nice lift." so the slap heard across the ocean. >> what is it that we can expect parliament is going to do in september when they come back, when it comes to this scandal, sort of where is the investigation now and where does it go forward? >> it seems to be strange that after this dramatic session, emergency session in parliament yesterday they went on holiday, on vacation today until september 5. but that doesn't mean, by any means, the investigation is over or even paused because the key investigation at the moment is by several parliamentary committees, judicial committees, also of course the police are investigating and even daily news corp operations are having their own investigations. there's a lot of investigating g
